There we go! It is now official. Rami Malek has won the Oscar for Best Actor at the 91stAcademy Awards.
The Egyptian-born actor won for his portrayal of Queen member, Freddie Mercury, in the 2018 blockbuster, Bohemian Rhapsody. Pegged as a favorite since the film hit cinemas in October, Malek gave both a charming and heartbreaking performance as the famous singer.
Although it was clear that Malek had the award in the bag (having already won a Golden Globe and BAFTA for his performance) he was up against some fierce competition.
From Hollywood veterans to identity changing performances, Malek did have a lot to beat. But having now won the award, he can bask in the knowledge that he is now an Oscar-winning actor.
